TRGMF Youth Initiative
The Theodore Roosevelt Gibson Memorial Fund, Inc. has decided to concentrate its youth education initiative on STEM education, a major area of concern and have dedicated our youth services program to exposing the children in our community to STEM and related STEM Career Field options. We understand that in order for today’s youth to compete in the 21st Century, they will need to be exposed to science, technology, engineering and mathematics in a way in which they have never been exposed before.
We are hoping to incorporate programming that includes an annual summer program and college tour (focusing on engineering and technology programs), a STEM Saturdays Program (that will expose students to everything from robotics to biotechnology) and an intensive STEM + M Summer component.
We have a strong reputation in the community of providing quality services for youth throughout the community. Hopefully, with the help of this grant, we can continue to provide innovative, quality educational programs that the community has come to expect from us.
